Whether you have an in-house team or are exporting the building of infrastructure to a trusted partner, make sure the team is asking the right questions when it comes to implementing and deploying IoT solutions.
I can’t remember the last time I read an article about the Internet of Things (IoT) that didn’t start with market projections about the phenomenal number of devices that will be enabled in the next five to 10 years.
In the latest global smart city development report published by MarketsandMarkets, the global market size for smart cities is expected to grow from US$308 billion in 2018 to US$717.2 billion by 2023, at a compound annual growth rate of 18.4%. Since i
When you hear the words “Outdoor Advertising” you might think of dusty highway billboards and smiling realtors on bus stop benches. 20 years ago, that was probably pretty close to accurate. Today, it’s a different story.
Wired power is a strong option for developers that need to get to market fast and require an inexpensive, proven solution. For products where convenience and future compatibility are paramount, you can move forward confidently with standards-based wi
I recently had the opportunity to evaluate the UltraZed™ System on Module (SoM) and accompanying PCIe Carrier Card from Avnet. The UltraZed SoM is the latest in a line of embedded computing technologies from Avnet, which includes a heterogeneous S
In the summer of 2018, Avnet celebrated a major milestone: 1 million community members across Hackster.io and element14. As a project-based site, Hackster enables anyone to jump feet first into hardware through knowledge sharing, as well as contests
Pressure sensors’ accuracy is an important performance attribute, which is typically given as a percentage of full-scale pressure over a certain temperature range. Some sensors also exhibit hysteresis, non-repeatability and non-linearity, which sho
You think your radio frequency (RF) sampling design is well in hand because you selected the proper device and defined the clock source. But wait; you are not done. Even the best devices introduce degradation without proper frequency planning to ensu
Many engineers struggle to find the right application to integrate into the overall connected home. But here are four energy and utilities applications that can transform a one-off technology into an integral part of the home of the future.
The huge potential for innovation in industrial IoT (IIoT) offers the promise of significant productivity gains, operational efficiency and bottom line revenue increases, but only if it’s enabled by a supply chain based on reliability, stability an
SoCs with programmable logic are an essential element of real-time embedded vision systems. Designers can capitalize on the power and efficiency of Xilinx's Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC devices to implement their designs using Avnet's Embedded Vision Kits
In order to realize fully automated driving without human intervention, three conditions must be met - the vehicle must be fully aware of the surrounding environment, be able to respond accordingly when the environment changes, and the security of th
As electronics in our cars continue to become more sophisticated, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are taking center stage. These systems make many of the aspects of driving easier, and---most importantly—safer.
A hot new concept and enthusiasm are not enough to ensure a successful business. It requires steady research and development and lots of practice. And it needs more support from the upstream solution providers. Avnet is dedicating itself to providing
Engendered in 2002, near-field communication (NFC) stands out from among other wireless connection technologies. With an operating frequency of 13.56 MHz, maximum speed of 848 kbps and typical communication distance of 10 cm, it is a safer and more c
Type-C’s greatest advantage is its integration capability. In addition to not having a right or wrong side (a perennial problem for Micro USB users), Type-C is able to offer integrated power delivery (PD) during charging.
